The strengths and weaknesses of Swiss cybersecurity

The University of Oxford has conducted an evaluation of cybersecurity in Switzerland on behalf of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Federal Department of Finance (FDF). The study lends weight to the Confederation’s reorganisation in the area of cybersecurity risks, while its publication emphasises Switzerland’s readiness to engage in fact-based dialogue.

The conclusions of the study can then be incorporated into the evaluation of the Confederation’s cybersecurity structures, which were created within the framework of the National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber risks (NCS) for the period 2018–22. Conducting and publishing the study will also send out a strong signal beyond Swiss borders. “The study emphasises Switzerland’s willingness to engage in fact-based discussion with other states. This transparency builds trust and strengthens cooperation, and our approach also encourages other states to undergo their own evaluations.”
